I’m Nowhere by @brianhmerriam 〰 © 2015 — 6x9 on Ivory paper, edge dressed in red. Each book had a unique handmade feel because Brian treated each cover differently. This was back in our Brooklyn apartments so my remaining copies have some wear 😏#photobook #adecadeunderthezinefluence #alovetoken

Doom Life Monthly Zines — 1, 3-5, designed by @johnjr.bsk throughout 2013. Front cover fold-outs & work from Dark Arts. John let all the homies shine. Always looked forward to these. Vol 2 must’ve got lost in the shuffle. #adecadeunderthezinefluence

Can’t be sure of what the future holds, but we had a hell of a run. Saved @oddsandendsartbookfair, @printedmatter_artbookfairs, & @culturaltraffic exhibitor badges. Since our bookfair landscape has forever changed I’d like to get back to sharing some of the zines I’ve traded for, had part in, or purchased over the years. I’ll begin documenting parts of our own personal archives as we head into yet another lockdown.

Thankful for all of our friends around the world. Shrinking the distance through paper and ink.

In March of 2016, I spent twelve days in Paris. I challenged myself to shoot as much film as possible. I double-exposed some of it, I pushed most of it, and blurred some of it. I published the series into 64 pages for 2019's LA Art Book Fair, and now the remainders are available online.
